After flying for 17 hrs with a brief layover in Japan, we have arrived in Jakarta. Shortly after clearing immigration we had a chance encounter with our good friend Suchi whom we know from Hawaii. She had also just flown in and was picking up her bags. This caused quite a start for both my wife and Suchi as I was the one that spotted her. It was about 0030 and dark as we drove to the hotel. Still people of all ages seemed to be awake doing various things including some peddling their goods. We ate, slept, woke up and have a 30 min flight later today before we reach our first destination. Bandar Lampung.
